Entering Angles

Angles are their own object type. An angle is entered by prefixing a number with the angle symbol (∡, AL-RS-6), followed by a number, then finally a suffix that indicates the system (° = degrees, r = radians, g = grads, or d = DMS [DDD.MMSS, where DDD=degrees, MM=minutes, SS=seconds)1). To enter an angle in the current angle mode of the calculator, the suffix can be left off. For example, the following all indicate an angle of 90.5 degrees:

∡90.5°

∡1.5795.r

∡100.5556g

90.3000d

and

∡90.5 with the angle mode set to degrees.


Working with Angles

Trigonometric functions operate on angle objects as expected:

∡45° SIN yields the real number result 0.7071.

Basic arithmetic operations can also be applied to angle objects:

∡90° ∡50° + yields ∡135°

∡1.57r ∡50° - yields ∡0.6973r

∡90° ∡45° * yields 4050

∡90° ∡45° / yields 2

The result of an operation on angle objects has the following conventions:

  • Addition and subtraction between angles returns an angle expressed in the system of the first argument,
  • For all other operations, angles will be converted to the current angle mode and output a number.
